Abstract "as possible to protect our climate. This project has undertaken a discovery phase as a primary step to support our vision to provide a network tool and a UK assessment capability. The aim of this project is to support a safe, environmentally conscious, and cost-effective transition in as many existing assets as possible. This can inform how much and where legacy assets need to be replaced and/or maintained, providing an operational tool for both natural gas and Hydrogen leakage management supported by a digitised inspection process. Leakage of Hydrogen into the atmosphere during the production, storage, distribution, and utilisation will partially offset some of the benefits of a hydrogen-based economy [N.
